The new RI DEM Hunting Abstract is now up on our website, feel free to download. You will find it under “Public – RI Regulations”. It is in pdf format so you should be able to print it out.
Rhode Island Hunting regulations are uploaded on our web site. There are quite a few changes such as:
Crossbows are now approved for use by all archery hunters during the Archery deer season September 15 to January 31, provided the hunter has successfully completed the Bow Hunter education course or otherwise qualifies for an Archery deer permit. The use of crossbow for hunting wild turkey or any wild bird is prohibited by law.
Special permits are no longer required to hunt with the crossbow including those previously required for disabled hunters; however, use of Adaptive Aids for archery hunting still requires the special permit.
The use of buckshot in any gun is PROHIBITED during the deer season
Small game hunting season will remain open throughout the entire shotgun portion of the deer season.
The fall Archery portion of the turkey season is expanded from October 1 through November 28 with a 1 bird either sex bag limit.
Those hunters using Pop-up blinds during the firearms deer season must display 200 square inches of fluorescent orange visible on the outside of the blind from all directions. Hunters must also wear orange in accordance with the rules for the specific seasons while in the blind.
There are others changes so please take the time to read it before you hunt.
When this years abstract is published I will put it up on the web site to download.
You will find the regulations to download under “Public Information/RI Regulations” at the top of this page.
They are in pdf format so you should have no problem viewing or printing out.
